of society along with rule of law, along with a stable economy, along with writing business. >> i have an answer that is probably quite controversial and it doesn't have to do with the military%, but it has to do with the policy on how the u.s. controls the development of medical devices and drugs. it has become so problematic that a fireman and medical technology developers are now going to other countries to do the clinical trials in the work necessary to prove that their devices work successfully in human. this is a very backwards way of promoting national security in the context of preventing people from disease and injury through advanced technology. budget is important i think that if our industry and the health sector is turning to other countries that we maintain strong relationships with those countries and make sure there's a handshake there between our medical professionals and their medical professionals, that were not just experimenting on their populations. i think that is an important unintended consequence of our current policy. >> if i could pile on to your question. i
as the economics, as far as jobs and growth are concerned because it will add the extra umph to the economy. is that a possibility? >> it certainly is the possibility. first, i don't want to downplay how difficult this has been for the city and for the region. many people are now without homes. there are still thousands of people in shelters. so it's still a difficult time. we've got about $30 million of emergency contracts out there, expenditures that we did not anticipate. but over the long run, as you mentioned, if fema does come through with reimbursements to the city for some of our damaged publix works and the insurance companies come through with what is surely going to be billions of dollars of reconstruction money, that could be some kind of stimulus to the city's economy. >> you mentioned fema and the human tragedy. we are watching live pictures here from atlantic city's airport where air force one is just landing and the president having been to fema today is going to now link up with governor chris christie and tour the area in those helicopters to look at the very human side of

damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks like a war zone after a fire devastated the small community. absolutely devastated it. more than 100 homes were destroyed. officials say the high winds from the storm pushed the flames from one building to the next. amazingly, no serious injuries reported there. but high god, look at that neighborhood. it
will be to restore the american economy so people can purr shoe their dreams as they see fit by limited government and build capacity so people don't have to get in line and be dependent upon government. no one wants to do that. we want a society where the next generation has more opportunities than what we have. and the american dream is what this election is about. are we going to reverse the track we're on which is a false sense of economic security where we get in line and have the government solve our problems for us? as if that's ever worked in american history. or are we going to restore american greatness the way we know it works best to create jobs in a strategic way with a guy as president that will work to build solutions rather than just talking about things? i was governor of this state for eight years and i had to work with a lot of democrats but i had to work with a lot of republicans as well because they were in the majority the whole time. imagine what it would be like to be a governor of a state where 85% of the legislature was in a different party. it would require leadership th

and treasuries? >> well, china buys our debt because they have to, because they have an economy that's geared to selling things to the u.s.. last year, commie that's merchandise trades surplus against the united states was 195.5% of the overall surplus giving the united states leverage with china because china runs deficits with the rest of the world to run a surplus with us. we don't have to worry about china. dennis: i see. donald gross, the more you tell the chinese what to do, the more recalcitrant they get. >> the question with china and getting tough with china is look at the issue and the overall context of the relationship. right now, primary focuses on strengthening the fragile u.s. economic recovery, the american growth rate at 2%, the chinese growth rate at 8%, and the fact is that u.s. trade with china's highly beneficial. china's helping us to pull out of the global economic crisis. as you probably know, china's america's third largest export market. it's the largest growth market in the world for u.s. goods and services so we have to address the serious trade issues we have with

this could take as much as $30 billion out of the u.s. economy. any update to that figure? >> earlier comments, a lot of contingency plans, a lot of uncertainty here. but i think that's a fair estimate initially. let's look at governor christie's comments. depending so much on how fast the money gets back into the system and there's rebuilding. having lived in new york, you realize that the winter is coming. there's a huge inventive for people to start getting these things fixed right away. so that money will be put to work. so $30 billion is still our best estimate. at this point in time, depends on how quickly the money is put back into place. but having lived in this area, you probably appreciate the fact that actually a lot of improvements will happen now with better infrastructure, especially on the public sector level, so we actually could see an addition to economic growth in the first quarter greater than the loss in the fourth quarter. >> this is an important point, because as people try to sort out the impact, we've seen estimates from your firm that this could take two tent
particularly his handling of his economy, the economy is not doing very well, you can't criticize him on this. this is something that needs to be done. why is it important for markets to be open? well, guess what? we don't know what the value of corporate america is -- if we don't know what the value of corporate america is, that's a problem. we don't know how much ibm is worth because the markets are closed. that's how you judge the value of these companies by what their stock is trading on. without an active stock market, you can't sell ipos. you can't do a secondary offering of stock. you can't finance yourself. the business of capitalism stops. why was it stopped for two days? now, obviously, you know, if we're going to an emergency contingency plan, there's a chance it might not work as great, but it is better than nothing. could they have opened it up a little bit? you know for a couple of hours? liz: or at least the traders that could get in. >> forget about traders getting in, i would say this, why doesn't every wall street firm have a contingency plan where they don't have to send pe
